Had a fabulous meal, served by brilliant waiters. Locanda del Colonello has a great wine list and some really inventive dishes, I was blown away by the "breakfast steak" who knew that coffee beans would work so well with beef. My wife had the black...More

Associated with the wonderful nearby Palazzo Failla Hotel. Seated at a corner table in the courtyard with the aroma of fresh herbs growing in a flowerpot behind the table. Served by a knowledgeable staff. In addition to the delicious introductory Amuse bouche, flavorful and delicate...More

We stumbled upon this charming, hidden away restaurant on a Saturday when everything seemed closed for lunch, and couldn't have been more delighted. The staff, the service, the lovely little garden, the quiet elegance, and the artistic and delicious dishes were divine. Authentic and original,...More

This was a restaurant that was on my list and recommended locally as well. An excellent choice. You won't be overwhelmed by the volume of food, but the quality, creativity and taste were all well done. One of the best meals we had during two...More

Touring in Sicily can make you overeat. Portions are generally enormous; the food is delicious; there is guilt if you don't have all three courses before dessert. In truth, the menus are very similar too. So this Locanda was a discovery and a surprise. A...More
